    Thanks so much. This is a great little gift idea for those Christmas quilting gatherings, donation tables for auctions, etc. I'll be making a few!

    I saw these at a show in Dallas in March...wish I had bought one then..the lady that made those used butter tubs to make her rings...and used a ring top and bottom...
    these resemble the "leaf catcher" bags we use outside...I googled these using every name I could think of and could find NO tute on how to make them.,...thanks for sharing!

    This is a great idea. My simple thread catcher is a 5" square of fun cotton cut with pinking shears , with a slightly smaller warm and natural scrap layered on top, then sewn down the center. I pat my sewing strings on it when sewing. I made a couple, I fold one in half and take it with me to class or keep it in my quilting basked for hand quilting. I also attached one to my sewing machine table with double sided sticky tape. I also use scraps of my warm and natural batting on my swifter. Use both sides, and then discard.

    I spent about 45 minutes looking for a pattern for this very item and I should have come to the board first. Thank you so much for sharing your talents, it is going to the top of the projects list.

    I use these also with all my hand sewing...keep them in sewing machine case also....they come in handy. GF uses her embroidery machine with "threads go here" on the front, really cute.
